Mediterranean Style Oven Roasted Veggies

While researching,  I found that the phrase "Mediterranean Diet" is actually defined as a noun (in English Language) as "a diet of a type traditional in Mediterranean countries, characterized especially by a high consumption of vegetables and olive oil and moderate consumption of protein, and thought to confer health benefits." 

A Mediterranean diet incorporates the traditional healthy living habits of people from countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, including France, Greece, Italy and Spain. Our hostess Archana for this week at #FoodieMondayBlogHop has suggested #222MystiqueMediterranan as the theme.  

I love buying and prepping veggies a lot, and as a family, soups and salads are always on the menu plans as a stand alone snack or appetiser. Today's dish is a baked crisp (or chips if you prefer). Its completely vegan and GF and can be added to your #Thanksgiving or #Xmas meal spread. My kids loved the crisps and it just flew off the baking tray. I have mildly spiced it, but you may add any spices that you / your family prefers. 

Prepping the veggies and marination is the only time consuming task here, else the winter veggies are a perfect time to make this Gluten free , vegan snack.

Similar flourless bakes on the blog include:

Baked Falafels

Baked Tandoori Gobhi

Baked Vazhakkai Varuval (baked raw plantain chips)

Baked Gobhi Mussallam

Prep time - 20 mins, Baking time - 17 mins approx. per batch*, Serves - 2


(*Baking time differs from oven to oven*)

Carrots - 100 grams
Beets - 100 grams ( I used 1 really large beet)
Sweet potato - 100 grams
Potato - 1 large (cut into wedges)
Olive oil - 3 TBSP
Salt  - to taste
Spices and herbs (all to taste) : sumac, dried rosemary, dried chilli flakes, white pepper, black pepper, dried oregano, 

Peel and wipe the veggies of all extra moisture with paper napkins. Let them air dry on tissues for 5-7 mins. 
Cut the veggies into long strips / batons. In a bowl, add the veggies, spices and half the oil+salt and mix well. Cover and marinate for 30 mins. 
Preheat oven to 170C. grease the lined tray with 1 tsp oil. 
Spread the marinated veggies without overlapping on the baking tray. Sprinkle remaining oil and salt and bake for 17-18 mins (or until they are crisp) , turning them over midway.
(Airfryer also works for this dish)
Serve immediately as is or sprinkling more pepper / red chilli flakes on top. Enjoy :)
